Abstract

The study aimed to analyze the phytosociology and multipurpose tree species use in a managed forest in the Actaaia community, Settlement Moju I and II, Santarém, Pará. 10 ha of managed forest were sampled, systematically allocating 20 plots of 20 m x 250 m, with all trees with DBH ≥ 10 cm measured. 128 species belonging to 37 families were found. The Shannon diversity index was 4.04, which resulted in 83% of the maximum diversity of the sample. Each species was represented on average by eight individuals and the density and basal area were 341.83 trees.ha-1 and 18.05 m².ha-1, respectively. After exploration, the forest contained species with timber and non-timber potential use by the community, with the occurrence of 58% of species with at least two uses, revealing the importance of studying their features to improve the quality of life of the community, which should be considered in a community forest management plan.
